What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Ford intends to demolish the Twin Cities Assembly Plant...

But workers and the community and the Minnesota Legislature have yet to have a say in all of this.

Ford never thought that they would receive such stiff opposition to closing the Twin Cities Assembly Plant. That opposition is just getting off the ground and only now is it beginning to sink into the minds of workers across the state of the dire consequences this plant closing will have.

Public ownership of the plant is a widely accepted idea but it has yet to be transformed into a mass political movement.

To date, all decision making concerning this plant has taken place behind the closed doors of the corporate boardroom and people readily see the hypocrisy of "democracy" in the way this has all gone down.

Very few people are willing to accept Ford's "right" to close this plant and demolish it to boot without public input on the plant's future.

Ford will not get the last word... Minnesotans will.
